TITUSVILLE, Fla. - On Wednesday, a mother pitbull and her three 4-week-old puppies were saved from a Miami house that had been riddled with bullets and set on fire by a Molotov cocktail.
Miami-Dade Animal Services confiscated the dogs, which left their fate uncertain in one of the largest municipal animal shelters in the country.
That's when the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Brevard stepped in to help.
"As soon as I heard this tiny family's story, I knew we had to help" said SPCA of Brevard Associate Director, Angie Friers.
On Monday, the SPCA's vet will provide a thorough checkup on the mom and puppies and once given the green light, they will be placed into foster care.
Once placed, the puppies will be spayed or neutered and then adopted into loving homes.
